Common Problems with activeCollab

I can't find my API key (support for Version 5)#

If the screenshots from "How to Get Started with activeCollab" don't match your account, you may be running the new ActiveCollab version 5. This Zapier integration doesn't quite yet support that version, but it's coming. Send us a note and we'll add you to our Version 5 feature request so you'll receive an email as soon as it's available.
